AN INTERNATIONAL APPROACH TO THE INTERPRETATION OF THE UNITED NATIONS CONVENTION ON CONTRACTS FOR THE SALE OF GOODS John Felemegas, ed., Cambridge University Press, 2007

Abstract:     
This article presents and analyzes the law pertaining to the Buyer's power to avoid (terminate) an international sales contract for breach of contract by the buyer. The analysis studies two major contractual regimes: the UN convention on Contracts for the International Sales of Goods, 1980 (CISG) and the European Principles of Contract Law, 2003 (PECL), with some comparisons to the UNIDROIT Principles, the UCC and the BGB, and judicial opinions from several legal systems applying the CISG and other relevant law.
